(No Deepavali is ever complete without the crunchy murukkus – I am sure everyone agrees on that. The photo was taken on Deepavali last year)
Certainly, Deepavali was not like how it used to be back those days, somehow some things have changed, don’t you think so? Perhaps it is because we have grown up and life has gotten slightly more complicated or perhaps large family gathering getting out of fashion these days, I don’t know.
(Despite the years, this is still the best Deepavali advertisement ever! It was funny, direct to the point and made us think for a second on the meaning of Deepavali. We will miss Yasmin Ahmad for her talents & creativity)
Photo of the sunset reflected off the window of our apartment on the Deepavali week. The dust is a major irritation here.
I can’t recall but this is probably the third time I am celebrating Deepavali far from home and family
The first year I did that was quite painful especially when my son had just born and it supposes to be the first year to celebrate it as one family. But work assignment and professional commitment took priority and we had to postpone our celebrations after I came back from abroad. Deepavali was a gloomy day on both ends.
